rip off
« on: 28 May 2022, 16:21 »

 Having recently made purchases from a VW dealer, I'm beginning to feel that the prices of late are so high that we must be being ripped off. A few examples from my own experience, A top  timing chain cover gasket £30,
A MAFF sensor £173, an inlet manifold £480, has anyone else had any wide eyed moments while trying to keep their GTI up to date. or is it just me being out of step with prices.  :angry:

Intake manifold £275 from the USA is the only recent purchase that I know about in your list. Bought an OEM  spray can kit and that was cheaper at the dealer than elsewhere. Think it depends what you are buying.
Mk6 GTI Carbon Grey, 2010 Bluetooth and voice fitted, a few VCDS mods still a comfortable family car. Red Scirocco 2011 twin charger stage 1 - enjoyable drive now gone.  White 2016 Polo GTI (roller skate on steroids) replaced with an Indium Grey 2019 7.5 GTI PP.
